Future Destinations For QF?

Hi all,
I was just wondering, apart from DFW and CDG, will QF ever get more destinations or routes with the arrival of more A380 and the B787 fleet? Or have foreign airlines to Australia got too big of a presence that would restrict QF growth?

I don’t think that we will see a huge amount of new destinations for QF over the next decade, maybe re-entry into a few markets, perhaps SFO, PEK and CDG. I do think however we will see some more point to point services and an increase in frequency instead of a SYD focus. I think most future QF growth will occur out of MEL, BNE and PER and maybe a small amount out of ADL, not sure how much change we will see from SYD after the DFW introduction. It will be interesting to see how the DFW route preforms, maybe we will eventually see services from all Eastern-ports in the long term on 787s? However I foresee most growth looking forward will sadly be from JQ.

I think we may see BOM non-stop from either SYD or MEL. PVG and NRT services from MEL (obviously the NRT service will have become more long-term then short term after the recent disaster). There are always rumours of an additional FRA frequency maybe from MEL? PER maybe non-stop to LHR? ADL-HKG? All routes QF currently serve but mostly SYD based that are connected through SYD, SIN or even HKG.

I think if we look real long-term ten to fifteen years we will see maybe a SIN and HKG service from CBR, but this is very long term and debatable!

Me being a MEL boy myself I would like to see some QF growth here, maybe a CDG or FRA service originating from MEL? JNB would be nice, not sure if it would cannibalise the SYD service, VA always was full not sure how they faired yield wise mind you. I still can’t see it happening would be nice though.

When will be hearing back from Lesley Grant’s task force on International opportunities? I do hope we see some growth and innovation come from her recommendations.

It will be a very interesting decade to come in the Australian Aviation industry; I do hope we see a shake up at QF after the re-branding of DJ. I hope competition improves products and services, and by this I mean we don’t see JQ simply spreading as this seems like the easy option out for management in my opinion along with cost cutting. It would be welcome to see QF become innovative and challenge the foreign airlines, as they bring in a new more efficient fleet and recent moves to cut labour costs come into effect their cost basis must slowly be decreasing substantial.

CDG has in no way been confirmed by QF yet, it is still dependant on some rules changing. In the next decade we will see more increases on already served routes and more services to China and India. I think, once the 787's and more A380's arrive we will see services back to SFO and YVR.

JQ will be the real growth in the QF brand over the next decade, and will very likely fly to Europe and North America with the 787's as well as a bigger market in Asia.
